K-Drama, News, Renewed or Cancelled

This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Insider and its renewed or cancelled status.

What was season 1 all about?

Kang Ha-neul (who starred in When the Camellia Blooms) leads this series. Playing as Kim Yo-han, a judicial apprentice who ends up in jail after partaking in an undercover investigation. It looks all doom and gloom for the character, but he continues planning while behind bars.

Remember Dr. Brain? Well, Lee Yoo-young returned to play Oh Soo-yeon, a woman who has plenty of powerful connections. Other stars include Heo Sung-tae (Squid Game) and Fan Bingbing.

Insider replaces the jTBC time slot previously occupied by Green Mothers’ Club.

Will there be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Insider – renewed or cancelled status

Status: not renewed/ TBC

As we write this article, Insider has not been renewed for a second season. However, it’s not unusual for the industry to wait until they make a decision on renewal. As we know, most K-Dramas tend to enjoy a single-season story and wrap things up conclusively by the finale. So once we have seen the conclusion, we’ll be able to sense what the writers have in mind. However, that doesn’t mean it will not be renewed. While the K-Drama industry tends to enjoy single-season stories, the trend of second and third seasons has increased in the last 12 months.

What about ratings?

Insider has not led in the rankings, but the ratings for the show have been respectful. On July 29, its seventh episode, the K-Drama series got a nationwide percentage of 3.087. However, will this be enough to persuade a renewal? We think it’s unlikely, but as always, at Ready Steady Cut, we’ll keep you posted!
